Our 2020 peony root catalog is now online. These roots will ship in the fall of 2020. 

I hope you all have a lovely Christmas and a super New Year! 

We look forward to 2020 with renewed hope for my husband, Abel's continued healing. As some of you know, he was in a serious accident 4 years ago; and I will take a minute to update you on his progress.

He was blessed with having disc replacement and nerve decompression surgery in his neck one month ago, 4 full years after a dump truck driver ran a red light and rear ended his pickup truck. (The at fault drivers insurance has yet to pay any medical or time loss, until settlement; and, not until after all needed surgeries are authorized by our own health insurance). His shoulder was surgically repaired in 2017.  

He starts physical therapy tomorrow and is so looking foward to that. He should now be able to have the needed back surgery in 2020. Although his traumatic brain injury is considered permanent; it may continue to slowly heal with time and more vestibular therapy. His headaches, dizziness, memory, cognitive skills and eye tracking/fixation issues, as well as other body injuries/pains, continue. I continue to believe in miracles and know that God is watching over us. Feel free to say a prayer for Abel's continued healing and medical care.

I am blessed to do what I love - grow peonies, while keeping an eye out for Abel.  You all make that possible with your support of our farm. We appreciate it. 

If you are in Oregon in May, we would love to have you stop by during bloom season - we enjoy meeting and greeting our visitors. 

Looking forward to 2020,

    Growing a peony in a large container is possible. At some point, the roots will likely outgrow the container, the bloom will diminish and it will need divided and re-potted. It is best to grow in the ground. Peonies also need cool/cold winter temperatures for at least 700 – 800 hours below around 40 degrees to produce flowers.

    Hello Therese,
    Abel is in my prayers, as well. I’m two years into a similar, hit and run accident which also left me disabled. Chronic pain, PTSD, etc. Hoping for positive resolution for us both. Thank you for your 2020 catalog. Ordering today. Steve J.

    Thank you Beth, we appreciate your prayers and support. He is busy with physical therapies for neck; nerve that was pinched for 4 years; and vestibular therapy.

    Hello, I am adding Abel to my prayer list. Your faith is admirable! Will be purchasing some peonies for our new home sometime soon.
    Take care and God bless you both.
